The model for Seton’s exquisite “Sleeping Wolf” lived at Jardin des Plantes Menagrie or Paris Zoo.
The painting hangs in the Seton Gallery at the Academy for the Love of Learning, Seton Village, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Although Mrs. Mary Trindal’s pitch to Congress for making the wolf our country’s National Mammal was unsuccessful, her passionate plea to save the dwindling population is still important. See page 6 of the Animal Health Foundation‘s magazine for the details. The image is Seton’s “Sleeping Wolf” which hangs at the Seton Gallery on the Academy for the Love of Learning’s campus in Santa Fe, NM.
